Screening of CENSORIOUS! with Q and A with the film makers
Director: Carol Jacobsen
Co-Producers: Carol Jacobsen, Shaun Bangert, Marilyn Zimmerman 30 min.
2005 Censorious is a funny, provocative, feminist overview of the culture wars in the U.S., narrated by artists Carolee Schneemann, Martha Wilson, Holly Hughes, Renee Cox and others who fought major battles for their politically charged works. The film spans the decades from the early 1970s to recent years. Censored works in painting, sculpture, video, photography, installation and performance art punctuate the documentary.
The screening will include a Q and A with the filmmakers and a discussion with audience on issues raised in the film. Moderated by Alla Myzelev.
MISS REPRESENTATION – In Partnership with OCADU Student Union
"Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, Miss Representation (87 min; TV-14 DL) uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself."
Screening at 8:00pm
Followed by a Panel Discussion
Moderated by the Youth Outreach Coordinator of FAC – Aldeli Alban Reyna- Programs and Projects Coordinator of the YWCA Canada.
Panel to be announced.
Admission is FREE.
